As I’ve been feeling the concept of leftover people lately, I’d like to do something with them. But I dunno, I’m pretty busy in life. Could I make the time? The ones I’m most inspired by at the moment are the TTRPG Kult‘s “Children of the Underworld.” Back in the day when I was inspired by something in an RPG I’d just make a character or scenario in that RPG, but for every hundred character sheets I may have played one or two sessions. A lot of waste. Now I’m like, how do I steal this without stealing it, so I can use it in my personal arting or writing?
The CotU are a lil’ HR Giger, a lil’ Clive Barker. There are comparable concepts in lots of stories. How to make this thing mine? Also, in the spirit of not starting new projects until I get some of the old ones done, do I have an existing project I could wedge them into? Of my recent spooktobers, maybe Conrad’s Sojourn, maybe Josefina y Blasfemina? I dunno. Of last year’s spooktobers, maybe Blasted? Of the year before that, maybe Hot-Handed God of Beasts? From MonsterHearts events, maybe Die Monstervitches? I’m Your Turbo Lover? Daphne?
Anyhow, I percolate. Anything you’d like to see in dismal gothique leftover peoples?
